Carmack is charged with two counts of assault and battery, misdemeanors punishable by up to 93 days in jail and a $500 fine; domestic assault and battery, which carries the same penalties as assault and battery; filing a false police report of a felony, a felony punishable by up to four years imprisonment and a $2,000 fine; and stalking, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a one-year jail term and a $1,000 fine.
Hockey players also testified at the hearing Wednesday, alleging Carmack was combative and assaulted them when they tried to make sure he left the gathering.
